Patients initially triaged into a particular category may qualify for another category with availability of new results or change in symptoms. For instance, patients entering the intermediate risk category may need to be moved into advanced risk category if there is evidence of high-risk features such as new or worsening congestive heart failure (CHF) symptoms, malignant ventricular arrhythmias, hemodynamic instability, or recent percutaneous intervention or coronary artery bypass graft. Any evolving ST changes or positive cardiac markers within 24 hours will also move a patient into a higher risk category.
